With all of the explosions and bot-aspirancy in highsec, we sometimes forget about the good things that go on in that area of the EVE galaxy.
While I was FC'ing a death sentence against an unlicensed miner, I received a convo from a gentleman miner. He politely waited for me to finish correcting the Code violator. One of our scouts reported another target, and I forgot about the convo for the better part of an hour.
It's always OK to send isk to me.
As a courtesy, I always remind people who purchase mining permits that they need to pledge loyalty to me in their bio.
...But he was way ahead of me. Another permit sold, and highsec was one step closer to perfection.
Then I received an EVEmail from one of his friends. I do not use the word "friend" lightly. Some people are business partners, colleagues, acquaintances, or temporary allies. A miner who tells another miner to get right with the Code is a true friend.
Though rife with bot-aspirancy, greed, and carebearism, highsec is also a place where the spirit of love and friendship is beginning to grow.
